Thai Basil Antelope

      • Antelope steaks – marinated in soy sauce and lime juice for at least 4 hours
      • 1 red bell pepper – chopped
      • Snow peas – as much as you’d like
      • Bamboo shoots – found canned
      • 1 large red onion, chopped
      • 6 garlic cloves, minced
      • Soy sauce
      • Sriracha Hot Sauce, or similar heat
      • Sugar
      • Large handful of fresh basil – chopped
      • White rice
      • Coconut Milk – light or full flavor (I typically opt for full flavor)


      1. Begin by cooking rice in coconut milk and water (if needed)
      2. Sauté onion and garlic in oil over medium high heat
      3. Cut your antelope or other game meat into very small pieces
      4. Add the meat and cook with onions and garlic until cooked through – You may have to remove some of the moisture that collects when sautéing meat. I did and just used a large spoon. This allows the meat to brown.
      5. Once browning begins, add bell pepper and cook for a few minutes
      6. Add soy sauce – 1/2 cup or as much or little as you’d like
      7. Add Sriracha – as much as you’d like – it’s HOT!
      8. Add 2 tablespoons of sugar and then more if you need to decrease the heat
      9. Continue stirring and tasting sauce to make sure the combination of sweet, salty, and spicy is to your liking
      10. Add snow peas, bamboo shoots, and basil and continue to cook for a few more minutes
      11. Serve over coconut rice and be sure to include some of the sauce
